Hi Gentlemen,How did I miss this. This looks like it should be private email to me. I consider strategies for dealing with school on topic, but debates about ... other stuff off topic for the list. Offensive language is not OK for the list.
Thanks and sorry I had to jump in. Jim __________ Take back your shopping life at http://tinyurl.com/32rsxz----- Original Message ----- From: "Matthew2007" <matthew2007@xxxxxxxxxxx>

yes, I did, which is why I stated in the body of my message that I was not referring to you Chris H. I was simply amplifying Sana's answer to the post.Your statements and foul language regarding Rosa Parks was completely uncalled for. By the way, she kinda was an agitator as she worked for the NAACP, and it is common knowledge that black activists were looking for a fight in order to generate nationwide publicity for their unjust plight. ...but all that is completely, completely off topic.Matthew--- Original Message ----- From: "Chris Hofstader" <chris.hofstader@xxxxxxxxxxx>To: <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, October 10, 2007 7:49 AM Subject: RE: Story BoardsMathew, Did you actually read my post before tossing a hissy fit about my last resort suggestion of legal action or do you have a vocabulary impairment that led you to first ignore the technical solutions I offered up as possible ideas for bridging the gap between his need for accessible tools and his lecturer's history of rejecting his other attempts at doing so on his own?If you happened to notice, I included legal action as a last resort - aftertrying a number of technical solutions, talking to the professor and, ifnone of that worked, going to the Dean of Students and, if the problem stillcannot be resolved, then look into legal action.If Brown didn't sue the Board of Education and Thurgood Marshall didn't dosuch an excellent job of working the case, who knows what might have happened next in the context of school segregation. Would you havesuggested that Rosa Parks was nothing more than a trouble maker for sittingin the no nigger zone on the bus?What I gleaned from Marvin's post is that he already seems to have talked to his professor and tried using accessible tools to make a story board which have been rejected. Specifically, Marvin states, "...sighted students, woulddraw navigation and story board diagrams. now, I had to do this in wordtables and tried html. but my lecturer is still not happy with what i havecome up with." So, I suggested a few more technical options that he could try but if theprofessor has his mind set on a certain look and feel for said story boardsand will continue rejecting Marvin's attempts at finding an accessible solution then what do you suggest Marvin do in lieu of failing the course due to the blockheaded lecturer? Where do you guys suggest he go if all accessible solutions are rejected?As we are what the United Nations calls the "most oppressed minority in the world," we need to keep all potential weapons in our arsenal. If that meansfinding a technical solution that one's professor (in this case) willaccept, then we have a friendly solution. What do you suggest when friendlyattempts do not result in a positive outcome?
